God helps David protect his sheep from a lion and a bear. (1 Samuel 17:34-37)
Miriam had the responsibility of watching out for her brother Moses when he was floating in the Nile River. (Exodus 1:22–2:10) She thought on her feet and creatively figured out a way for Moses’ mother to be with him in the palace. Our Bottom Line is: Use your imagination to figure it out. We will discover that God gave us an imagination to solve problems of any size.
Each day’s devotion includes:
1. a verse(s) to read
2. a devotion paragraph that teaches something about God and an explanation of today’s verse(s)
3. an activity that makes real-life application of the day’s devotion
4. a suggested prayer.
Encourage kids to choose four different days during the week to do these devotions. Even though kids in early elementary are beginning to read things on their own, you may want to do the GodTime card with your K-3rd grade child. Most 4th and 5th graders are capable of having a “quiet time” on their own, once they’ve been taught how to do it, but they still benefit from an adult following up on it.
